Nice location but room is a bit run down

Pros: The location is about 15 minutes walk to the main train station and within walking distance to the old town and main shopping street.
Cons: The beds need to be replaced and housekeeping need much improvement.
Location: Easily to do a walking tour on your own.
We booked 2 rooms in this hotel for 3 nights. First impression was very good, greeted by a very friendly reception and even though it's was 11:30 am one room was ready for us. The room was small and not much space to put both our luggages. The closet has just 2 hangers and just enough space for our heavy winter coats, then you don't have space to hang out anything else. The bathroom is very tight fit and we have to put our toiletries and makeup bags in the closet. There is a tile picture on the wall inside the bathtub and there are mold at the edges. I don't think housekeeping ever clean that and because when you shower water get splashed against it all the time. There is a complementary bottle of water in the room but it didn't get replenished. We asked the housekeeper to refill it and she said no. Our friend took the bottle down to the breakfast room to have it refill and was told that housekeeper should have it refill everyday which apparently wasn't done in both of our rooms. Housekeeping is very sloppy as there was hair in the bathroom floor that was never vacuumed. The bed is very soft and sagging. The staff at the bar is very friendly and pleasant. Breakfast is OK. On the whole, I would say the front desk and restaurant staff are good but housekeeping and room need improvement.

Not much in the hotel area but walkable to the city center and main train station.Breakfast is very pricey with not much of selections. Room is small,needs a lot of updating with the carpet and chair as well as the tv.Reception looks very old not as shown in the picture.Not really a standard for a hotel chain of Sofitel/Continental.No concierge seen or bell boy to assist with your luggage.

Dear Eve, It saddens me to see that you did not enjoy our breakfast as it is one of the most praised points in guest reviews about our hotel; in the end though of course tastes vary. Next time you visit us,do not hesitate to speak to us at the reception as we do have concierge and bellboys in the hotel. Most likely they were occupied with another guest at the time you arrived.

Pros: Not too far from the station unless you hate walking. It's away from the buzyling crowd just north east from the station.
Cons: No comment.
Location: As tourist just a few minutes you are in bahnhofstrasse Close to shopping, restaurant, bus stop for day tours and grocery.
Our room was at the back, so expect to be very quiet. Comfortable bed and plenty of outlets great for those who brought lots of electronics. shower gels, lotion, complimentary coffee etc are refilled every day without a hitch. And we received a complimentary bowl of fruits on our first day.
